Royal Navy. Rates of Pay 1930's
« on: Friday 21 June 19 16:34 BST (UK) »
Hi Guys,
Just got my Grandads, Royal Navy Service History. In 1935 he was promoted from Senior Master to Headmaster Lieutenant. The rate of pay column shows '24/4'. Is this /s or s/d, and is this a daily, weekly or monthly amount?
Many thanks,  Dave.

These (courtesy of naval historynet) are WW2 rates of pay.  Pay was expressed in daily rates and was 1 5s 4d (25/4) so small increase on his rate.

You might find www.measuringworth.com interesting if you are after a 'feel' for what that equates to nowadays.  As ever, though, it is not quite as simple as one might think.
